Name of Activity:
Purpose of Activity:To fully include all students in a cooperative activity. This is best used as a culminating activity.
Suggested Grade Level:6-10
Materials Needed:2 chairs, ball (brightly colored nerf ball is best), team jerseys, cloth strips
Description of Idea
Set up two chairs at opposite ends of the playing area. One student from each team sits in a chair and becomes the goalie. Divide the class into two teams, with one team wearing the jerseys/pinnies. Each team spreads out on their half of the playing area. Toss a coin to see which team will get the ball first. The object is to pass the ball from teammate to teammate, until the team goalie catches the ball. The goalies are placed on the opposite ends of where their teamates are. In other words the goalies will be facing their teamates at the start. Set up a 6' x 8' safety area in front of the goalies. The defensive players can't go inside of that area. When the goalie catches the ball scored a point for that team.
- After catching the ball a player cannot walk (or move his/her chair). If he/she does, then travelling is called and the other team is awarded the ball. A person in a wheelchair may wheel around in a circle to find open teamates.
- Players may use a pivot foot/wheel as in basketball.
- If the ball touches the floor, (i.e. a teammate drops the ball or has it batted down when throwing), the other team is awarded the ball.
- Defensive players must stay at least 1-2 ft. (your decision) from the offensive player. This should limit fouls and some possible rough play.
Encourage your students to use short passes to work the ball to their goalie. Maybe give them extra points for making 4 passes in a row successfully.
If outdoors use a frisbee instead of a foam ball.
Give points to team using good sportsmanship. You will have to define what this is however.
Keep score by giving them one point for completed passes and two points for getting ball successfully to goalie.
